      April 2011 food report - quick service meals

      I hope this works out ok because I have never done a food trippie before.

      We initially did have lots of TS places booked, but had to cancel them all due to reduced budget.

      So here goes - 16 nights of quick service meals and a couple of room service ones

      I will say however we were extremely disappointed with the quality of food and the variety. It seemed like we were just eating the same rubbish over and over. Most places the food was barely warm. There was serious lack of variety for the kids meals and I did notice that even with the TS places the kdis were getting the same rubbish that they would get at any of the QS establishments.

      We weren't happy and each meal was costing a lot of money when the amount/qaulity was very poor.

      In the end we tried to eat at the timeshare as much as possible, and even resorted to taking sandwiches with us, but this wasn't always possible.

      Snack on British airways flight from Edinburgh to London Gatwick

      really hate flying with BA - they staff are awful and the service is rubbish

      we had a quick snack onboard and a drink

      bag of nuts and raisons or a cookie (which looked yuk!)
      I had a lemonade and kids had orange juice (Gary and I don't drink alcohol so you wont see any of that in this Food TR lol)

      Virgin Atlantic Meals to Florida

      We had stayed overnight at the gatwick hilton and had a meal there. The food here was great, but a tad to expensive for us. Despite that the staff were brill and everyone ate.

      I wasn't really looking forward to eating on the plane as I had heard the food had deteriorated a lot
      I remember going PE in the 90's and thought the food was brill.

      Here is what we got:

      Kids were fed first. First problem was they forgot Louie's meal. Yes he is an infant, but i paid extra for a seat for him so would expect a meal. We finally got it, but then they bypassed my meal as I had Louie's tray on my fold down tray thing.

      Kids meal

      Dinosaur shaped pasta in bolognaise sauce
      Bag of raisons and sultanas
      bag of haribo mix sweets
      orange juice
      peter rabbit peach and apricot smoothie

      Attachment 1722

      All the kids (except Louie) hated it. Rebecca ate nothing at all.

      Adult meal was just as bad

      Choice of sheperds pie or veggie chilli
      prawn salad
      roll with butter
      water
      chocolate pudding with raspberry compote

      for some reason we forgot to take a picture of this. I eventually got mine after asking for a 4th time. It was awful anyway so I am glad I ate the kids meals lol

      Half way through the flight we got a choc ice.

      Afternoon tea
      Kids - jam sandwich and soft cheese sandwich
      raisons and saltananas (again
      mini chedders

      again they forgot Louie's and they never came back with his chedders. None of the kdis ate this

      Adults - coronation chicken or a cheese and pickle sandwich
      with a chocolate and raison cookie

      Polynesian - Captain Cooks

      We ate here on our first full day at Disney - we were all startving as we hadn't really eaten for ages (I took cereal with us in the case so we just had this before bed and for breakfast)

      This is what we had

      2 x adult cheeseburger and fries
      Kids - 4 x cheeseburgers meals with grapes and cookies
      extra sides of fries as I didn't realise you could swap the grapes or cookies for fries lol
      2 x regular soft drinks
      4 x apple juice cartons for the kids (included with kids meal)

      total was almost $50 - we weren't too impressed with this as it was a tad cold when we got it. The service however was fab and they were all lovely here

      One small complaint was the air conditioning was quite chilly whilst sitting inside. My mum and dad arrived and moved us to the outside tables, but we had to quickly abandone this due to the very very aggressive ducks and birds. One duck actually jumped up onto Louie to steal a chip. another small black bird looking thing stole charlotte's whole cookie. Rebecca was freaking out so we had to go back in.

      I apologise for not taking a picture - we were so hungry we forgot lol

      Same thing happened to me last trip. They forgot to bring my meal (they were pretty slow to find us as it was) due to having Sophies in front of me at the time. I did eventually call someone but chose to eat her cheesy bolognese than the two adult options, neither of which appealed. It wasn't too bad for plane food
      I like Captain Cooks, one of the better QS venues you'll find. :)

      The reason those birds and ducks are so aggressive is the idiot people who ignore the signs and feed them. They have gotten to the point now that the expect food.

      I couldn't have said it better. This drives me crazy. Feed the fish, ok, feed the birds, smack right upside the head.
